The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are enjoying their season under Jurgen Klopp so far, but they are concerned by Manchester City’s dominance at the top of the table.
Despite playing some of the most impressive football witnessed in the Premier League so far this season, Liverpool still find themselves well adrift of league-leaders Manchester City. Pep Guardiola’s side have stormed ahead of the chasing pack in such a manner that suggests Liverpool have no chance of catching them this season. However, as we all know, the Premier League is full of unexpected results and the dynamics of a title race can shift in the blink of an eye.
But Liverpool will be worried that their pursuit of the league’s top spot this year and in the years to come, could be derailed by the departures of their key players.
The future of Liverpool’s German international Emre Can has been in serious doubt since the beginning of the season, and those doubts were further intensified earlier this week by Correire dello Sport, who claim Real Madrid are the latest club to express an interest in his signature.
The resident Kopites are clinging on to the hope that Can will make a sensational U-turn by signing a new contract before the end of the season,
However, in the event that Can does leave the club, the Liverpool supporters should hope that he opts for Los Blancos over Manchester City who he has been previously linked with.
With Fernandihno’s contract set to expire at the end of the season, it is likely that Guardiola will be seeking a replacement in the next two transfer windows.
Guardiola has proven in the past that he has a talent for enabling talented players to reach their full potential, and Can could prove to be the next instalment of individual success under his management.
If Can eventually moves to City, he will have a fantastic opportunity to unearth his true potential and his individual development could further cement their dominance in English football.
